On stage from childhood in his parents' vaudeville act, Hardie Albright (b. Albrecht, 1903-1975) was a character actor in many films of the 1930s and 1940s. He got a few starring roles, notably as Arthur Dimmesdale in The Scarlet Letter (1935). He was the voice of the young Bambi in the Disney film (1942). He appeared in a dozen Broadway plays, Shakespearean roles included, between 1926 and 1938. He retired in 1948 to write about acting and to teach drama at UCLA, but returned to television in the 1960s. He made multiple appearances in both sitcoms (Leave It to Beaver, Dennis the Menace, Hazel) and dramas (Perry Mason, Rawhide, Gunsmoke). He was the UN Secretary General in the Twilight Zone classic To Serve Man (1962). Saul Goodman (1919-2003), a New York business man by day, pursued his love of film and theatre in the evening, making friends with many celebrities. While other autograph seekers offered album leaves, Goodman presented stars with snazzy photographs, a rarity then, to sign in fountain pen. Corners lightly worn and creased. Pencil note (unknown hand) on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
